Latina/o Undergraduate Involvement with College Student Organizations and Its Effects on Specific Student Outcomes at Two, Large, Predominately White, Midwestern Universities.
Montelongo, Ricardo
The college extracurricular experiences of Latina/o undergraduates were studies to learn more about the nature of students' experiences of Chicana/o and Puerto Rican students with Latina/o, minority, and other college student organizations. The study also examined the relative influence student, institutional, and involvement factors have on satisfaction with college and academic achievement. The research used a cross-sectional survey design, with surveys completed by 344 students (35% response rate). Puerto Rican and Chicana/o students did not differ much with regard to minority opinions and experiences, although Puerto Ricans tended to be more critical of Latina/o student organizations. Campus life has a significant effect on satisfaction with college and academic achievement, and participation in community-based organizations and minority student organizations has important influences on educational outcomes for Latina/o college students.
